Horch der Trompeten Schall!
Es klingt wie meines Herzens Wiederhall.
Jetzt kommt er, jetzt kommt er: Schnell die Wimpel hoch am Mast!
In goldner Seide harr' ich ohne Rast,
Mit Tusch' geziert die schwarzen Augenbraun
mit Rosafarb' die Wangen, hold zu schau'n.
Die Sonne hebt sich über Indien.
Ich warte auf den Herrscher, meinen Freund,
Aus Ewigkeit erkoren ihm zu dienen.
Horch der Trompeten Schall!
